Thank you so much to the thousands of you who placed your votes for our Charity of the Year 2024. All five of the charitable causes are doing fantastic work in the city but it’s our real pleasure to announce that this year we’ll be supporting Birmingham Hospice.

Thank you so much to the thousands of you who placed your votes for our Charity of the Year 2024. All five of the charitable causes are doing fantastic work in the city but it’s our real pleasure to announce that this year we’ll be supporting Birmingham Hospice.

At Birmingham Hospice it’s their mission to enable more people from all communities to access the care of their choice at the end of their lives. For more than 150 years the charity has been delivering care to people who need it across Birmingham. They offer a wide range of services to patients to ensure that they receive the care of their choice when they need it. The first is through their Inpatient Unit. These are rooms at one of the charity’s two hospice sites where a patient can access ‘round the clock’ care, and receive intensive symptom management. Last year, 571 patients were cared for by the expert doctors and nurses at the Inpatient Units. 

Birmingham Hospice also provides Hospice at Home Care. This is delivered to people who are at the end stage of their illness and dearly wish to die at home. The charity’s staff work alongside GPs and District Nurses to make sure patients are as comfortable as they can be. 

They also provide Living Well Centers where the principal aim is to help people ‘live well’ with their illness. They offer a variety of programmes where people learn how to cope with symptoms; take part in therapeutic activities; and set realistic goals. In the last 12 months 1,312 people have benefitted from this service. The mental health and wellbeing of patients and their families is at the centre of everything that the charity does. There is a team of Counsellors, Spiritual Carers, Therapists, Wellbeing Volunteers and Bereavement Volunteers whose focus is on supporting patients and their loved ones, emotionally and spiritually, in whatever way works best for them.

We shared the news of the public vote with Birmingham Hospice Income Generation Director, Lucy Watkins and she told us:

“We are thrilled to be Birmingham Cocktail Weekend’s charity partner for 2024. 

This partnership will allow us to continue raising awareness of the work that we do across Birmingham, whilst also raising funds to support local people living with a terminal diagnosis and their families. 

With thousands of people in attendance, this is a fantastic opportunity for more people to hear our name, learn about us, and feel encouraged to support us over the weekend and in the future. 

We couldn’t be more delighted for this opportunity and look forward to a great year ahead with the Birmingham Cocktail Weekend team.”

Last year we raised over £1,200 for our Charity of the Year, University Hospitals Birmingham Charity. With not one but two festivals this year we’re hoping to be able to raise even more funds for our 2024 chosen charity, Birmingham Hospice.
